At $450 per cyberQ including fan or Power Raptor as I have, that translates into about 18 units; considering their profit point perhaps 36 units sold.

Appears that BBQ Guru management has indeed changed since the death of its founder.
Splash top uses tons of server-side infrastructure to make that possible. They even proxy for connections (like mobile) that don't allow incoming. How would you connect to a guru that has no outbound net connection? Totally different from the guru, although I agree they should have built all the graphing etc into the device directly..
